I don't think it's out yet.  :huh:

I never doubted myself for a minute for I knew that my monkey-strong bowels were girded with strength, like the loins of a dragon ribboned with fat and the opulence of buffalo dung.

I'll be honest I've only seen the first & I was highly disappointed.
Spoiler
That being said I still plan on watching the other 2 just because they are movies & I'll watch just about anything once & I am interested in seeing how they tie in the first film. However I will be watching them with much lower expectations. I am definitely not going to believe half the hype they've received. Who knows, maybe with lowered expectations I'll enjoy the other more.

I believe it came out at 12:00 am today. I wouldn't quote me on that though.

I wasn't impressed with the first one so I doubt I'll watch either one or two. Maybe if they are on TV and there isn't anything better on.

They were not bad and I hope to see the third. I waited untilled the hype was gone to watch them though.
Its like watching the village by shamalan. Go into it with preconceived notions and the movie sucks. Go into it without expectations and the movie was one heck of a novel idea.
I hate when something is hyped. It totally ruins it for me whether its TV movies or music. Even artwork... heck the Mona Lisa is not what you would expect if you see it in person. A lot of hype makes the painting seem grandiose but in person its quite a small painting. Still good though just an aura of hype.....
Well that's my pennies worth anyways.

I completely agree...I try not to read any reviews before I see anything. And usually the trailers show the best parts.

I wasn't impressed with the first one so I doubt I'll watch either one or two.

Brain fart, that should have been two and three. :blush:

I agree. I think it was the hype that ruined the 1st for. I'm actually getting ready to watch 2nd right now & I'm going into it with much lower expectations. I should know better by now than to listen to the hype, but sometimes I still fall.

The weird part of the first one I had to get used to was the fact that first... it wasn't a typical Hollywood production. Is was basically Indie. So the way the movie was. Made just did not match what I was used to with Hollywood A movies. The second is it was supposed to feel like a home video diary/documentary. The movement of the camera took a bit to get used to also. Then I realized that is was supposed to feel off. Abnormal if you will. This was a hi def  home video. Tada.!  Eureka I found the mindset.... at that point I was able to watch both one and two and enjoyed them for what they were. And honestly for me not too shabby. Believe me they could have done much much worse with the home movie style viewing experience.  And it was so subtle that the end actually threw me for a loop. I wasn't expecting the end.
Had I been expecting a typical Hollywood style flick I definitely would have been disappointed.
Well that's two pennies now so I'm out of here...

It's out here in Sydney, and i'm seeing it tomorrow. I enjoyed the first two, well more so the first one, but hopefully this one will be good also.

i liked the first one more after watching the second one, they pull it together and kind of make it a deeper layered story,they threw in more jump moments.im hoping the 3rd one will get even deeper into the story..

on a side note i found both to be a better experience to watch with a group,i dont jump at movies often if at all but something about a crowd jumping together that was fun to see and hear..i found when i watched these at the house i was to easily distracted to enjoy all the little creepy things.

I think what bothered me about the first one was that I was expecting something more frightful (again I fell for the hype & expected more than I should have), especially when I'm used to some pretty disturbing films. However I'm 1/3rd of the way through the 2nd film & I am pleasantly surprised.
Spoiler
Maybe it's all of it, but I am actually much happier with what I am watching this time. Let's hope that the next 2/3rds doesn't suddenly disappoint. Keep in mind it could also be that I'm fueled by whiskey this time. DAMN! I'm almost out of whiskey!... oh well.
